As the demand for more and more exacting motion control increases across numerous industry sectors, it is vital that before investing, customers are informed enough to make sure that they select the right solution for their specific application.
Despite the maturity of the machine tool industry, allowing for many advancements in engineering design over the span of decades, a machine is still limited by what the builder is able to implement.
Q&A with Ronald Valenzuela, Engineering Manager, KHK Gears: As technology advances, we have seen a shift into using much finer pitch gearing. We have certainly come across more exotic gear designs in the Mechatronics field that require a much smaller design..
Some robot movements can be realized with rotors, but most of them work better with linear actuators. If you have drives with programmable positioning, you can create a precise machine useful for a number of tasks.
Inductive eddy current technology is an extremely versatile non-contact method for measuring an object's position, distance, or vibration.
With potentially disastrous effects resulting from galled fasteners seizing or even being subject to a fatigue breakage, the manufacturing industry players are advised to counter this threat.
Q&A with PBC Linear: With lead screw accuracy up to 3x tighter than industry standard screws, and backlash control up to 4x better than traditional solutions, performance is improved and overall life extended.
Industrial control equipment industry looks to independent distributors to address chronic shortages in the availability of electronic components
The company needed a linear motion solution capable of guiding and translating the machine's spray water jet assembly, which moves back and forth along a linear shaft.
As technology advances, components become smaller and more compact which requires specific automation techniques and maintenance. Transfer mechanisms require high versatility in its capabilities.
Although monolithic EMI filters initially cost more than equivalent ordinary capacitors, our customers tell us that their cost is a fraction of the cost of a common mode choke alone.
The parts include Ford Focus HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Cooling) Lever Arm Service Parts, Ford F-150 Raptor Auxiliary Plugs for a niche market, and Ford Mustang GT500 Electric Parking Brake Brackets.
These secondary sourcing partners might only be temporary or assume small roles in regular production, but the advantages manufacturers realize from having a reliable backup readily available are substantial
Industry looks to independent distributors to address chronic shortages in the availability of electronic components.
An argument can be made for the flexible shaft being one of the backbones of the aerospace industry, and it isnt difficult to see why. From windshield wipers to TRAS systems to jet afterburners, flexible shafts are there ...
